[en] This paper presents the sintering behaviour of a La0.9Sr0.1Ga0.8Mg0.2O2.85 coral-like microstructure powder. This is prepared by a successive freeze-drying and self-ignition process followed by calcination at 1200 ◦C during 1 h. This synthesis method gives great uniformity of the powder and allows shaping into compacts without requiring a grinding step. The grain size distribution (between 0.5 and 4 m) favours a good sintering behaviour: open porosity disappear at 1400 ◦C and relative densities over 99% can be achieved after 6 h at 1450 ◦C. The same powder can also be sintered into a thin disc of ∼100 mthickness. The characterization of the dense material by impedance spectroscopy shows that the activation energies below and above 600 ◦C are 1.0 eV and 0.7 eV, respectively. The conductivity at 800 ◦C is ∼0.11 S cm−1. Special attention is devoted to the temperature range between 200 ◦C and 400 ◦C, where the intragrain and intergrain contributions can be distinguished. The analysis of the parameters describing the intragrain constant phase element in the equivalent circuit suggests that, above 325 ◦C, the system evolves from a distribution of relaxation time to only one relaxation time. The analysis of the data by the complexes permittivity show that ionic oxide conduction mechanism would occur in two steps. In the first, an oxygen vacancy would be released and, in the second, the migration of the ionic oxide would take place in the material.
